Verizon’s Wear24 Android Wear smartwatch is dead after just 4 months

Just 4 months after its initial release, Verizon has already killed its Wear24 smartwatch.

No matter how big of a Google fan you are, we can all admit that Android Wear isn’t in the prettiest of places at the moment.

The U.S. unlocked HTC U11 doesn’t support Verizon’s CDMA network, and that’s okay

Sometimes you just have to trust that the company selling you a phone has done its homework.

The U11 is arguably the best flagship phone HTC has ever made, and it properly competes with the other great phones released in the first half of 2017. But in coinciding with HTC’s general decline in the U.S. market, its partnerships to put phones in carrier stores have dwindled, leaving us with a single carrier “partner” here: Sprint.
